Kobbie Mainoo has absolutely stunned the Premier League with a fine goal to collect three points for Manchester United against Wolves.
Marcus Rashford and Rasmus Højlund got the ball rolling in the first half, handing Manchester United a well-deserved 2-0 lead going into half-time against Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Premier League.
However, chaos ensued in the second half, with Wolves earning themselves a contentious penalty that Pablo Sarabia promptly converted – although this was then cancelled out by Scott McTominay‘s header five minutes later.
Wolves then fought back through Max Kilman, who made the tie 3-2, before Pedro Neto scored what everyone considered a last-moment equaliser until Kobbie Mainoo danced his way into the Wolves area to curl the ball past Jose Sa to win the game.
“It is a dream come true,” Mainoo told TNT Sports after full-time.
“It is a tough place to come. We had to get the win. I have still not come down from it. I still feel like I am dreaming, to be honest.
“To start playing in the Premier League for my boyhood club has been amazing. Now it’s about trying to win more games.”
Mainoo has become a mainstay in Erik ten Hag’s team in the last six weeks, and has now scored in back-to-back games, which only further goes to show just how fantastically talented he is.
